Superb 1950s ruby red layered net cocktail dress


A dramatic original 1950s ruby red cocktail dress in double layered fine net which rustles wonderfully when worn.

With a simple horizontally gathered bodice bodice and full skirts, the dress is lined in toning satin and has an additional angled frill to the left side of the skirts.

Shown here over a simple net petticoat (not included) the dress closes with a zip to the side of the waist. Unlabelled.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries. I am always happy to combine postage at cost on multiple purchases.


Equivalent to a modern UK 6 to small 8, the bust measures 31 inches, waist 24.5 inches with the hips largely free. From the waist seam to the hem is 30 inches.


Generally good vintage condition with some signs of wear, several repaired tears to the net hovewever not really visible as double layered, a few scattered marks to the left vertical seam area by the zip. 


  • UK £4.00 
  • Europe £8.50
  • Rest of the world £9.50

Payment to be received within 5 days of sale (unless otherwise agreed) after which time a non-paying bidder case is automatically opened.
